It’s Trash to Treasure time again! The RDCK’s semi-annual celebration of waste reduction happens Saturday, October 19. This  event provides participants with an opportunity to give away used items to those who may find value in them. This is also a chance for residents to search their community for their neighbours’ unwanted treasures.

Residents are encouraged to place any gently-used, unwanted household goods together at the front of their property in a location that can be safely accessed by treasure hunters.

A sign should clearly indicate which items are available to take home. By 4 p.m. the same day all remaining items should be gathered up and taken inside.
